Rab Town dates back to the 12th century when the ancient settlement was fortified. The town was sold to Venice in 1409 and much of the architecture you see was built under Venetian rule. The town is organized around three straight streets that run parallel to the sea, aptly named the Lower Street, Middle Street and Upper Street. Particularly striking are Rab's four famous bell towers. Several of them date back to the 12th century and have survived the collapse of their attached churches.
